On 6/30/20 at 3:40 pm, a resident confronted a suspect who was trying to steal a bicycle from the front of their garage (on Encinal Avenue) . The suspect ran away and hopped onto a different bicycle and rode away. The suspect was last seen riding southbound on Laurel Street towards Menlo Park.
The resident described the suspect as a Hispanic male in his “late teens,” approximately 5’ 8” tall, wearing a black baseball cap, and a black facemask with white piping, a black t-shirt with a red design, dark jeans and a black backpack. The bike was described as dark in color with a red baby carrier.
This suspect fits the description of a prowler seen trespassing in a yard on Greenoaks Drive on Sunday, June 29th at 5:40 pm.
Please keep an eye out for the suspect described above, as he appears to be committing these crimes in broad daylight.
As always, if you see or hear anything suspicious, please do not hesitate to call the Atherton Police Department.
